Rachel and the TreeSchoolers - review

Do you have a child ages 2-5?  Yes?  Then this review is for you!  I run a small day-care in my building.  There are plenty of people who work, and there are several children whom I sit for on a regular basis.  From Aliyah, the 3 yr old on the first floor, to Rayna, the VERY active 3yr old on the 4th floor, there is no shortage of energy during the day.

Rachel and the TreeSchoolers:
Make preschool learning fun and easy with Emmy-nominated host Rachel Coleman and her TreeSchooler friends! Based on a comprehensive curriculum, TreeSchoolers videos engage children in learning through music, movement and fun! Charming characters like Abacus Finch, Isaac Newt, Chroma Chameleon and others will help your child learn important preschool concepts and character-building values.

The other day, the kids had BOUNDLESS energy, however, it was raining, which means no outside.  I decided that this would be the perfect opportunity to watch Rachel and the TreeSchoolers, a preschool dvd/cd set that I received to review.  The children surprised me...normally filled with energy and unable to sit through even a few minutes of a movie, they sat through the entire dvd and then wanted to watch it again.  Because they enjoyed it so much, I printed out the free "Rainy Day" Activity Guide that is offered for parents and teachers, which includes fun and easy activities for at home or in the classroom. There is a PDF guide includes a full set of printable resources, including a My Rainy Day book template, character cards, word cards, song lyrics and fun certificate.

First, I'll say that I'm impressed with it, because it was able to keep their attention.  That's a big plus.  Second, they really enjoyed it!  The video was engaging and entertaining, and it was filled with great teachings.
Second, the activity guide was fresh and unique.
In all, I'm really glad I was able to show this to the kids, as it's become a favorite in the group.  It has been watched many times since, and will continue to be played.

I like this one personally, because of it's core teaching, NEVER GIVE UP.  Showing the itsy bitsy spider in a whole new way... that the spider didn't give up.  I've never looked at that song that way.  

Be sure to check out the Signing Time website!  It's full of information and resources, including a forum, resources for Teachers and Therapists, Sign language activities and more!

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

  3. Rachel is totally awesome. I have been a huge fan of her Signing Time series for so long. The kids have learned a strong base for sign language through that series.
